Well, I've always viewed Letterman as being a stand up guy. And at least he got this information out there himself in his own way so that him and his family can hopefully get past this. Must've been a really difficult decision for him  to come clean with this on the air.

Sounds like the extortionist picked the wrong guy lol.  Gotta admire ol' Dave.  Want two million bucks?  How about a few years in jail instead?

The only thing he is sorry for is getting caught.

This guy is slimy. Hatred

I'm assuming he's married. He could've paid some guy to keep quiet and explained to his wife why two million is missing in private. Or he could keep the money and tell the world. I'm guessing it would get great ratings !

Oh he's married all right.

Sometimes it seems as though the bigger sin is in being caught, rather than the deed itself.  I am afraid I don't quite 'get' that mentality.

Thumbup  Good one Torgo.

I agree. Letterman and the extortionist are both slimeballs. I don't care for Letterman.

You're right, the extorionist is slime too. I'm not excusing his behavior.

I already thought Letterman was a bit of snake. I'll admit he's got balls fessing on air and getting the guy banged up, but seriously who the hell would wanna have sex with him? I'm sure it's only stupid show assistants that were trying to further their own careers. But this is a man who makes his living "talking" to people. Hell, I do that everyday (being a human being), it's just there isn't a film crew present when I do.  Lookingup

It's pretty damn difficult to be consistently entertaining and popular on a talk show like the two he's been on, especially for 25+ years like Letterman has.  It combines elements of showmanship, stand up comedy (Letterman, of course, is one of the head writers as well as the solo performer), directing, producing, interviewing technique, and a lot of other skills. 

Not commenting on his personal life...  Just saying, I have to give credit where credit is due.

I mean, putting this whole thing aside, is it just me or has Letterman just seemed to have become more mean spirited and nasty over the years?  Granted, I'm not a regular watcher of his work, so maybe it's always been like that, but it just seems like more and more with certain stunts he's pulled and various bits from several news shows, he just seems like he's been in a quick slide to prickdom.
